and finally the defense talking about culpable homicide. and i thought there was an interesting back and forth about intention. didn't he intend to kill? he intended to kill a burglar. what kind of impact does that have on what they are talking about? >> a big impact. in the united states we would refer to that between the difference between second degree murder, premeditated intentional murder and something like mans. in south africa it's true there are lesser penalties if it is not premeditated murder. so the -- this is an intent case. i think the facts -- the important fact we know is that pistorius killed reeva. not disputed. he's admitted it. >> not who did he think she was? >> exactly. that's what the whole trial will be fought over. >> is the charge as the defense contends whether or not he intended to kill reeva, right? the back and forth they are having, there was an intent to kill a person in the bathroom. was it an accidental intent in terms of he didn't know it was reeva, or was it still intent. >> well, the -- the difference is whether you intended -- if he intended to kill reeva,
are not going to get another chance to cut the defense budget in the way it needs to be cut. white house officials disagree. as an outgoing defense secretary leon panetta who warned such deep cuts could leave america with a second rate military. you will remember republicans were furious before the election that the white house did not follow the warren act that requires employers to warn employees about the potential lay-offs. since furlough notices are only going out now, defense officials say they work at the pentagon until late april. even if the sequest starts on march 1. at the white house, ed henry. fox news. >> bret: the pentagon's budget chief says the effects of the cuts will be felt nationwide. he says the biggest potential losses will be in california, texas, georgia and virginia. national security correspondent jennifer griffin on what it could mean for one virginia community. >> sequester take effect, residents of hampton roads are worried about the contracts with the military. >> this is not like turning on a spigot. you don't turn it on and turn it off. these things are m

these matters than general odierno, who is a friend of brookings and the broader defense community for a long time, and he has been a distinguished servant in our nation's military and defense throughout that time. he took the fourth infantry division to iraq and presided over its operation, directed its operations in the first year of the iraq war. then he returned as the multinational force corps commander and was along with david petraeus and ryan crocker one of the key three american architects of the surge. from december 2006 through the early time of 2008, he was the person making the decisions on where the forces should go, how they should base themselves, how they should operate within the population, how they should interact with iraqi forces, all the detail behind the surge, that if you speak to general petraeus, he will say that is the crucial part of what made this whole thing work. general odierno was the primary architect. he got a few months off and went back to iraq, commanding the entire operation, where he did the job for two years and did not get any reprieve, because after
what, this wouldn't be such a bad thing, cut self-defense, can and conservative republicans says 5% across the board in domestic spending, not such a bad idea. >> and talking about defense cuts, john, these are cuts only in washington language. there will be increases in defense spending every year over the next ten years. but if the so-called sequestration goes through, they won't be as huge as they would have been without it. >> right. many agencies, including the pernt are not going to get as much an increase. most republicans want to protect the defense department. those are wrong and want to cut defense spending. this is the president crying wolf, they say. forgives the metaphor. but government agencies will have to do what every american family has had to do, make a piece of paper, list priorities, say how much money, list them first and pay for them until you're out of money. when the president says border patrol, first responders, then agencies can shift money around, and make sure those priorities can be met. so the question is will there be a temporary fix again, se quest
be redistributing the cuts so that defense is less hit. also have no dance partners. there is not going to be an agreement, we will hit sequester on march 1, it will take effect, and will happen is probably after the fact, people start working backwards and mitigating some of its effects. >> the only thing that would probably work is pain. when the campaign contributors are stuck in the airport lines for two hours, the pain will begin to be felt. it is an interesting thing -- the rubio speech, and lord knows the republicans had the obama speech an hour and a half or two hours before -- in some ways it was the ship passing and the night on the obama speech. he said the president proposed nothing on medicare, the president did propose something on medicare and in terms of cutting entitlements. there were things in this speech about reducing government costs. he also threw out a bunch of new programs that will cost more money and i don't think have the chance of a snowball in hell, i don't think he thinks that either. >> but he says that none of this will add a dime to the deficit, colby.

calculating an angle, taking aim at the toilet where vooe va was and firing. >> the defense is not going to dispute he shot through the bathroom door. they are not going to dispute that the angle of the bullets was what it was. they say the angle showed trajectory was that it was downward and to the left, which the prosecution is indicated is significant because it looks as though he was aiming at someone on the toilet as opposed to someone hiding in the bathroom itself. >> still so many unanswered questions such as how did reeva enter the bathroom unnoticed? pistorius pistorius's defense says she slipped boo the bathroom when he first got up to close the balcony door. and why would reeva lock the door? was she trying to protect herself from pistorius or an intruder intruder. his defense team argues reeva locked the door because she heard pistorius yelling at an intruder to leave. what about the bloodied cell phones inside the bathroom? how did they get there? so much evidence to unravel and an investigation far from over that may have been bungled from the start. pistorius's defense law
and reportedly tortured before arriving at guantanamo in 2006. defense lawyers had asked for permission to stay for two nights in cells next to their clients in order to witness conditions there. a judge rejected the request but said they can stay for up to 12 hours. we'll have more on guantanamo is we spend the hour with one of the first military officers assigned to prosecute prisoners there. nato leaders are reportedly considering a plan to continue funding an afghan security force of 352,000 troops for another four years, reversing previous plans to reduce afghan troop levels at the end of 2014. the cost of funding the current number of afghan security forces is roughly $6.5 billion per year, the bulk of its is provided by the united states. a plan backed by nato last year would have reduced the number of afghan security forces by roughly one third, cutting the annual cost down by about $2 billion. but nato officials now appear to be wavering on that plan, saying funding at the current troop levels could continue after foreign combat troops leave next year. nato secretary-general anders ras
the impacts of the continuing resolution and the impending sequester. for example, the department of defense has instituted hiring freezes, reduced or eliminated temporary or term employees and deferred facility maintenance and began postponing or canceling maintenance of ships, air and ground vehicles. they will also implement furloughs for most pleas, cut backs in flying hours and other military training and contracts. in addition, hundreds of investment programs, acquisition programs and research and development projects may become unexecuteable. even if many of the short term actions are still reversible if we act promptly they will have long-term costs. the longer congress postponed action the higher those costs will be. for example, the army informs us if sequestration continues through the end of the fiscal year, two-thirds of it brigade combat teams will fall below their acceptable levels. air force will experience decline in the air drop and refueling capability. the strike groups will not be ready for scheduled doe employments for later this year, resulting in negative impact on mo
that are in the sequester, the $85 billion minus the defense cuts, are a republican's dream of ending so-called big government, ending job-killing regulations, to do what grover norquist has always wanted to do, to shrink government and make it so small that you could drown it in the bathtub. and even though between 1.4 and 2 million jobs will be lost, republicans would have accomplished an aspiration for their party that they have had for a long time. >> no doubt. >> and they figure that they can come in through the back door, introduce a bill to restore the defense cuts, and with a bill that would pass both houses by 2/3 votes, that they could get a supplemental bill to restore defense cuts. this is what i think their plan is. and were it not for the president, we may -- they might have tried to -- they might have succeeded. >> the scary thing about this is that once you see these cuts kick in and once you see americans lose their jobs there's no guarantee that these folks are going to get back and get rehired and get back into the game. and this is the dangerous thing about these cuts that are o
, that you would block the defense secretary, and, allows the white house to say, this is creating instability. we have 66,000 troops still on the ground in afghanistan and need a defense secretary, secretary panetta is having to go to brussels this week, which was supposed to be the coming out party for senator hagel as defense secretary and they are taking on their own republican senators and i think if you count the votes now, they don't have the votes to block. >> chris: the votes to block but they've got -- >> had the votes to essentially have a filibuster and they say they will not filibuster but they don't have the votes at the end of next week to block hagel. >> chris: all right, but you talk about the information they want and you say they are moving the goal post, if you will. bob, as somebody who knows a little bit about cover-ups, are you a little surprised about the fact that we still don't know what the president was doing on the night of september 11th and we still don't know who he called, what he did, only talked about pentagon, defense secretary, once, that he nev
society, but as we face a sequester in defense and non-defense, it seems to me that we should all be able to agree that our fiscal resources should be viewed more thoughtfully to garner the greatest possible benefit from the money spent. that involves both reducing the role politics in allocating resources which is really part of a larger issue, the nation's fundamental challenge of governance. it also involves the policy and using available resources. in the context of the current fiscal debate, the hamilton project is put together a two- part agenda for the better use of fiscal resources. today's program will start with our distinguished authors, admiral gary roughead and the former chief of naval operations along with his co officer from the hoover institution at stanford. the other author, dr. cindy williams, a principal research scientists at mit and former assistant director of the congressional budget office. these authors will present proposals for a more effective use of our defense budget at a time of fiscal prudency. these approaches and the question of managing the resources i
bills last year that would deal with it by redistributing the cuts so that defense is less hit that also have no dance partners. there is not going to be an agreement. we will hit sequester on march 1, it will take effect, and after the fact, people will start working backwards and mitigating some of the effects. >> the only thing that probably works is pain. when all of the campaign contribute to both parties are stuck in the airport line for two hours, the pain will begin to be felt. it is an interesting thing, the rubio speech. republicans had the obama speech an hour and half or two hours before. it was in some ways the ship passing in the night with the obama speech. but the president did propose something on medicare with entitlements. there were things in the president's speech about reducing government costs. he threw out a bunch of new programs that don't have the chance of a snowball in hell. >> but he said that none of this stuff will add a dime to the deficit. how can he make that claim? >> the state of the union -- you used to watch these things to hear what the president ha

, followed up by the budget control act which directed another $487 billion worth of cuts in our defense spending. we are now just beginning to implement that almost $800 billion worth of cuts now. we have not quite seeing those that. we have just begun to see the impacts. on top of that, with sequestration, we will take an additional $500 billion worth of cuts in the department of defense, so we're now up to $1.2 trillion worth of cuts since 2010. this does not include the reduction in our spending of overseas contingency accounts, which also now has to be -- some of it will have to be woven into our base budget, such as ied detection equipment, which will cause another shortfall in the department of defense as we migrate these programs that we know we need in the future. trillion up to $1.3 worth of cuts, which we will have to find in the department of defense. this is significant. people often say afterward we have a reduction that is normal, in the army. since 2008, if we implement the 2014 budget without sequestration, it will be a 45% reduction in the army budget. if we implement

with the assertions made by the defense on their version necessarily means that the state's case is not strong. we are dealing with circumstantial evidence what one would expect? there are no other witnesses. the only one that knows what happened there is the accused. it is a matter of cause that when you are dealing with circumstantial evidence, pieces of the puzzle need to be put together and those pieces of the puzzle may not yet all be before me and of course the state obviously in the normal sequence of events would by the time that the state is ready or trial ready have more pieces of the puzzle and when that happens and assuming the matter reaches the stage where evidence is led in the trial itself, and at the close of the state case for example, if all the pieces of the puzzle leave the court with an inference as the only reasonable inference to the exclusion of all others, that it was the deceased who knew it s was, that it was the applicant who knew that it was the deceased in the toilet, fired from the distance as indicated by the state, then of course, the accused may have a case to
against him. final arguments are under way. it's day three of the hearing. the defense is angling for a lesser charge than premeditated murder. they say if pistorius wanted to kill his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, he could have done it in the bedroom and not in the bathroom. we've also learned that the lead investigator in the case is facing reinstated attempted murder charges for allegedly opening fire on a mini bus that was carrying seven people back in 2009. allegedly he was under the influence of alcohol at the time. i want to get right to nic robertson who's live outside the court house in south africa to walk us through some of the latest turn of events in this case. good morning, nic. >> reporter: good morning, soledad. well, the defense are putting their case just after a lunch recess, a very short lunch recess here. the defense saying that the prosecution hasn't even put forward enough evidence so far to determine that there should even be a murder charge, never mind premeditated murder. they say there's no eyewitne eyewitnesses, that this is a forensic case. the magistra
